Are you curious about Model United Nations (MUN) but aren't ready to commit to an entire conference or don't know how to prepare for one?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you might be interested in our one-night-only open mock debate! During this special online event, we will introduce you to MUN, the MUN club Göttingen and our activities. After this introduction, we will explain the rules of MUN-style debates and guide you through the mock debate - no previous experience or knowledge required!
The online debate will take place on the 8th of June at 6:30 pm. Our topic for the night will be: “How to Support and Develop Sustainable Prosperity in Sub-Saharan Africa”. During the debate you will be able to represent one of 20 countries (see google forms below). Countries will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so don't hesitate to sign up if you're interested! To help you prepare we will send out a study guide with an explanation of the topic and information on how to best prepare for the mock debate.

Feel free to join us whenever you like, new members can (and do) join the society all year around.

The Model United Nations Society Göttingen e.V. (MUNSG) was established in 2005. A group of students decided to participate in the famous Harvard World MUN in Edinburgh and founded the society. Since then, the society has constantly evolved and was proud to organize their first GöMUN-conference in 2009.
Apart from planning and holding the conference, the society works closely together with the Department for Political Science of the Georg-August-University Göttingen. Since the winter semester 2006/2007 the University offers an interdisciplinary seminar about the United Nations in cooperation with our society.
As a non-profit organization with the aim of improving international dialogue, the society also raises funds to offer financial support to its members, who wish to attend MUN-conferences, whenever possible.
Besides our engagement in Göttingen, we are working together with other MUN groups in Germany. Under the roof of the network Junges-UNO-Netzwerk (JUNON) we are helping to plan assemblies of delegates, workshops for other MUN groups and substantive work groups or study tours. Since the summer semester 2017 our society is proudly partaking in the project "UN im Klassenzimmer" (UN in the classroom), teaching pupils about the United Nations. JUNON is also a partner organization of the United Nations Association of Germany e.V.
